Fake Officer Among 4 Sought in Houston-Area Holdup

By  | 

MISSION BEND, Texas (AP) Authorities are seeking a fake police officer who flashed a badge and three other gunmen after a home invasion near Houston left one person slightly hurt.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday did not immediately provide additional details on the search for suspects in the Mission Bend crime.

A man with a badge on a chain approached the house around midday Monday. The homeowner refused to let the man into the home but instead directed him to the garage.

Authorities say three other men barged into the house and held the man, his son and his daughter-in-law at gunpoint while ransacking the residence. Sheriff's officials say one victim was hit by a suspect but wasn't seriously hurt.

The gunmen fled with some cash, a handgun and two cellphones.
